That seems unlikely due to distance.  Way too far from Dolginovo.  My family seemed to travel between Kaliskovkeh and Dolginovo with great ease around 1900 - even getting to Minsk was a great ordeal.

Dear Gesher Galicia Members and Friends,

Please join us for the Joint Program of Gratz College and Gesher Galicia. We invite Gesher Galicia members (worldwide) and non-members to explore the intersection between history and genealogy.

The Battle for Jewish Rights
Speaker: Dr. Andrew Zalewski

The current calls for social justice, accompanied by unrest and political turmoil, bear similarities with the story of the battle for Jewish rights in the Austrian Empire in 1848. During the talk, we will witness discourse on the streets of Vienna and Lemberg; hear reactions to the idea of Jewish emancipation; glance at the first Jewish newspaper in Galicia and learn more about the various controversies.

For further details about the topic and the speaker, please click on the link below. Pre-registration is required.
https://www.gratz.edu/event/gratzhome-webinar-battle-jewish-rights

Upon registering, you will receive an email from Gratz College—please save it and join the meeting 10 minutes in advance to avoid technical difficulties.

This presentation is a part of the collaboration between Gesher Galicia and Gratz College. Founded in 1895, Gratz is the oldest independent and pluralistic college for Jewish studies in North America.

We look forward to “seeing” you!

Dr. Steven S. Turner
Gesher Galicia, President

Upcoming Free Webinars #announcements

Vivs
 

2 upcoming Webinars that may well be of interest. 

I have no connection with either, but felt they would be good info for many in this group.

Both are free the day of.  The first is likely to be free for 7 days following, the second will probably take a week to be posted, but once posted is also usually free for another week. But I recommend trying live if you can.

Dealing with endogamy

 
by Paul Woodbury    |    Intermediate    |    Advanced    |     DNA     |

 

General rules of DNA inheritance assume independent genealogical lines. However, cases of endogamy, pedigree collapse and multiple levels of relationship to any given genetic match merit additional considerations for analysis and interpretation. Explore strategies such as segment analysis, targeted testing, anchoring, and variable segment thresholds for overcoming the challenges of endogamy, pedigree collapse or multiple relationships in your DNA test results.

Kapper-Roubitschek Family #austria-czech #records

Carol Jean Weightman
 

I am attaching an e-mail I sent to the Czech National Archives asking about the above family members.

The reply to my e-mail gives four links and explains that Jewish vital records are digitised and available on the National Archives website.

Link number 4 is fine and I have downloaded the document.

When I click on links 1, 2 and 3, I get the message: Safari Can’t Find the Server.

I have tried the website for the Czech National Archives but records do not come up when I try searching.

Can someone advise on the use of the website - or can someone see the records and send them to me.

I expect it is very easy if you know how.

Thank you.

No one can touch them, including you. To update you need to submit a whole new gedcom file.
In the past you were allowed one gedcom file per member, which can include multiple trees, I don't think this has changed.

Josef Hermann Löwenthal #austria-czech

ksevomhof@...
 

Dear all, I'm looking for information about Josef Hermann Löwenthal, born 12.4.1858 in Jihlava (Iglau), Mähren. He is my Grand-grandfather. His parents: Maximilian Löwenthal (born in Rousinov, Raußnitz) and Theresie Rösy Oppenheimer (born in Mikulov, Nikolsberg, Südmähren). I don't have any idea, whether Josef Hermann had siblings nor under which circumstances he died 1918 (?). Thanks for any information. Kind regards

The others are not family members, but are of an unknown group from the town.
There is some undecipherable writing on the bottom of the picture.
Any help would be appreciated.

Re: Kremenets region - Village of Kolosova #ukraine

Arkady K <arkadyka@...>
 

Sherri,

I cannot read Hebrew, but I actually posted an update to this post.  It is not Kolosova and it is probably not Ukraine, the village is in fact called Kaliskovkeh.  What is weird is that both of these spellings are basically from the same source, Noson Kamenetsky - the son of Yaakov.  Go figure.

Tell me more about this passenger manifest?   From where to where?

Help with a town/village in Russia - Kaliskovkeh #general

Arkady K <arkadyka@...>
 

My family descends from this man: https://www.geni.com/people/R-Samuel-Kamenetsky/6000000018773598395?through=6000000018773052848

According to his great grandson Reb Nosson Kamenetsky, Samuel and his family lived in a placed called 'Kaliskovkeh'.  This is also where his son Binyamin grew up.
This is also where supposedly Binyamin's first three children were born, including the very famous Reb Yaakov Kamenetsky.

The problem is, I cannot seem to find anything about this place.  As if it simply does not exist.  There could be a spelling issue perhaps, but I tried tons of variations and cannot find anything.
I can only glean that it was probably in Belarus, not far from Dolginov where Binyamin later moved and his wife Ettel was from.  

Any help would be appreciated.

Basic Questions re Family Tree of the Jewish People #general

Peter Lebensold
 

Apologies if this has already been addressed elsewhere, but ...

... if I load one or more of my family trees into FTFP, can anyone then “fiddle” with them - changing names, dates, connections, etc.  Or are they “locked”?

And if they are locked, is there any way that I can update or revise them?

Thank#.

Searching for the Bunimovitz Family Relatives that lived in Vishnevo , Today in Belarus #holocaust

Miron Chumash
 

I am  looking for information about my wife’s family who lived in  Vishnevo (today Belarus). They were executed on August 30,1942. We have no information regarding the backgrounds of the family members whose names are mentioned below: 

 

My wife’s  father  name is Elyakim Drori (Bunimovitz). He served during WW2 in the Polish army (cavalry unit), was captured by the Soviets  and was deported to a work camp in  Siberia. Around 1942 he was evacuated with Andres Army  and made his way through Iran to Palestine. On arriving in Palestine, the names of all the Jewish soldiers were changed to Hebrew names and they were sent to the Kibbutz so they would not be found when Andres army was leaving for Africa. My father in-law got the Hebrew name Nathan Drori (Gave freedom).  His relatives are the ones about whom we are looking for information:-

 

His parents are: Arie and Zelda Bunimovitz;

His siblings are Shirke Bunimovitz, Itzhak Bunimovitz, Reisel Bunimovitz ( she had a baby who was born in the Geto), Hertzel Bunimovitz, and Akiva Bunimovitz.

His grandparents are Moshe and Perla Bunimovitz.

 

My wife and I will be grateful for any information possible about them.

 

Sincerely,

Miron Chumash

Thank you all for figuring this out. It was a good lesson in researching cemeteries. Particular thanks to A. E. Jordan and P Cohen. I will follow-up shortly with the cemetery and and see if they will take a pic. I live in the Southwest and won't be there anytime soon.

(Luxembourg) Committee on the Remembrance of the Second World War -New website #announcements #holocaust

Jan Meisels Allen
 

 

The Committee on the Remembrance of the Second World War has published a brochure in four languages (Luxembourgish, German, French, and English) and has also launched its new website https://cm2gm.lu/ in French and English.  The brochures can be downloaded from the website or ordered directly from the Remembrance Committee at daniel.bousser@...

 

On October 16, 1941, the first convoy of Jews from Luxembourg left the country for the Lodz Ghetto. It had 327 Jews on board. Convoys continued until June 17, 1943 for a total of 658 men, women and children who left Luxembourg.

The Day of National Commemoration is celebrated every year since 1946 to commemorate the attempt of the Nazi occupation of 10 October 1941 trying, by census, to convince the people of Luxembourg to speak in favor of full integration into the German Reich. This year, a plaque commemorating the 3,614 young Luxembourg women forcibly recruited by the Nazis will be inaugurated at Luxembourg train station on October 18, 2020.

 

August 30 commemorates the 75th anniversary of the return of Luxembourg enlisted men from the Tambow prisoner of war camp. A little more than a thousand young Luxembourgers ended up at the camp for prisoners of war in Tambov. They were released over a period ranging from August to November 1945.

Familysearch, search the Catalog for: 
Jewish Congregation. Wiznitz (Bukowina)
 (then Austria and Romania, nowadays Ukraine) 1918-1930 are the only that online (as much as I know). 
Not indexed, manual page by page research needed.

Arkady,

This page https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/91051823/yaakov-kamenetskyhas a photo of Rabbi Kamenetsky's tombstone.  There is a lot of Hebrew writing on it.  Perhaps you will find some info there helpful to your search.

Also, have you located his passenger manifest?  That should list his place of birth.

Regards,

Sherri Bobish
